Time to grow new lilies

jennypat Zone 3b NW MN(Zone 3b NW MN)May 31, 2010

I have had some asiatic lilies in my garden for a number of years. I had to dig them out and move them. The large bulbs are fine, but of course there are a number of smaller plants in various sizes. I have potted them up, but I am wondering how long does it take for bulblets to grow into a blooming plant?

Thank you

I THINK it's usually two or three years.

Just stick them in a corner out of the way until they bloom and you'll get a nice surprise. I agree that it's usually 2 to 3 years.
